I am thankful for sanity and a brain that functions normally. My memory certainly is not perfect, and I learn new things more slowly than when I was a kid. But basically, I am still blessed with all my cognitive abilities. If you can think, carry on an intelligent conversation, figure out how to solve problems, have meaningful relationships with the people around you, and handle both the good and bad in life, chances are that you also are in possession of a normal brain. Even if it’s not perfect, take time to thank your Creator for it!
Today I’m thankful for time shared with my granddaughter. Yesterday we were driving down the street together, listening to the radio. A song came on that I really love – “Trust In You” by Laura Daigle – and I turned up the volume. Right about the time I started singing along, I could hear the sweet voice of the granddaughter singing with me.
“When You don’t move the mountains I’m needing You to move
When You don’t part the waters I wish I could walk through
When You don’t give the answers as I cry out to You
I will trust, I will trust, I will trust in You!”
It didn’t matter that she is in middle school and I am – well, old. Our hearts were in sync. The peace of Jesus was all over that car. In a world where very little is right or fair, Jesus can be totally trusted.
